From Tamora Pierce, the final book in the Song of the Lioness Quartet, honored with the Margaret A. Edwards Award.
Having achieved her dream of becoming the first female knight errant, Alanna of Trebond is not sure what to do next. She has triumphed in countless bloody battles, and her adventures are already legendary. Perhaps being a knight errant is not all that Alanna needs…but Alanna must push her uncertainty aside when she is challenged with the impossible. She must recover the Dominion Jewel, a legendary gem with enormous power for good—but only in the right hands. And she must work fast. Tortall is in terrible danger from all directions, with enemies great and small plotting to destroy everyone and everything Alanna loves.
Loved it - reminded me of a female version of TH White’s The Sword in the Stone.
This is a really good series but after the first book I really wished to see how everything was going with Thom. How he was making his teachers underestimate him and the challenges he was facing keeping almost the same secret as his sister, but great series definitely worth 5 stars
Best series ever
I love this series. Super good.
